paper maps for Africa, buy now or buy there?
I am re-posting this from another spot:
I am travelling by motorbike and space and weight matters...
are good paper maps available when you need them (meaning before you get to the capital) for all countires, or do you experienced african travellers recommend getting decent scale maps (1:1,000,000) for all your route before you leave Europe or the US?
ITM maps? is there a better brand in general?
My experience is local maps can not be bought locally, better to buy everything before hand but thats a lot of paper, or can you find them in good book stores in the major cities in adjoining countries?
I'll get the T4A maps for my GPS but for route planning paper is better.
